nena10 & all......
Thank you for this question and the good answer! I have a kitty named Noodles who has always does this and we have wondered why for months. She has to eat seperate from her 4 siblings, as she has special food -(little weight issue going on!)
NOW WE KNOW WHY!
I was beginning to wonder if something ws wrong - now I know she is just trying to protect her food from the sneaky 4 that try to take it!
you guys are real smart here!
